In order to achieve the overarching goal of increasing regional innovative strength, the JIH-Heilbronn creates space for the emergence of innovations that are often random and unplanned ("serendipity"). To this end, the JIH-Heilbronn offers novel meeting formats, such as the planned future lab Metaverse-Lab. It supports stakeholders in building the capacity to think openly in alternative futures and to successfully follow new paths to desirable futures ("futures literacy"). To this end, it pursues an open innovation approach ("Open Innovation") that best balances the development of new fields of activity ("Exploration") with the exploitation of existing fields of activity ("Exploitation"). The new research group develops needs-based solutions and is characterized by its strong interaction orientation, its strong application focus and its long-term interpretation of the collaboration.
We look forward to hearing from you if you, too, are facing or in the midst of a transformation towards digitalization and sustainability and are looking for orientation and design options in relevant future fields such as artificial intelligence, the circular economy or the metaverse.
